->''"The reigning mother-queen of all video game plot devices and rushed endings. [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVIII Ultimecia's]] evil scheme isn't anything so basic as blowing up, enslaving, or blinking the world out of existence. She wants [[TimeCrash to compress past, present, and future into a single being]] and create a universe in which only she can exist... while retaining access to the present-day [[{{overworld}} world map]], certain dungeons, [[GlobalAirship Ragnarok]], and [[SidetrackedByTheGoldSaucer all the important Triple Triad players from Balamb Garden]]. Don't ask how it's supposed to make sense. It doesn't. Time Compression was also a great excuse for the producers to slash the production budget for the ending sequence. Why is half of the ending movie [[ClipShow made up of distorted and looping FMV clips from earlier in the game?]] TIME COMPRESSION. If you want a few laughs, check out some of the bigger ''Final Fantasy'' fansites out there and watch them [[FanWank try to analyze and explain Time Compression]]."''
